SFA Webinar playback - managing retirement
There have been recent changes in the area of retirement as a result of the introduction of the Equality (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2015 on 1 January 2016 which aligned Irish legislation with European law regarding retirement ages. This amends the Employment Equality Acts 1998 – 2015 and requires employers to objectively justify their mandatory retirement age going forward.
Ciara McGuone, SFA Executive, delivered an SFA webinar on managing retirement on Wednesday, 7 June.
The webinar focused on some of the most commonly asked questions in this area:
- How can I manage the retirement process correctly to avoid an age discrimination claim?
- What do the changes to the legislation mean for employers in this area?
- What is considered an “objective justification” for a retirement age?
- How do changes in the state pension age impact on retirement?
